"...germs of larger worlds..."

Lydia Davis, who won the Man Booker Prize last week, had this to say on the Booker Prize website about the length of some of her short stories:

"Some of my thoughts or reactions are very brief, and their brevity is actually part of what I enjoy about them. They may sometimes appear to be just fleeting snapshots or records of transitory sensations but they are stories none the less because they hold within in them the germs of larger worlds and other narratives.”

More conversation on this at Women of Mystery today.

I'm interviewing Jim Jackson at Women of Mystery today. Stop by and comment if you'd like to be entered in a drawing for a copy of his fine debut mystery, BAD POLICY.
